White House Correspondents Dinner (2016)

April 30, 2016

Tom Hiddleston attended his first White House Correspondents Dinner (and the last WHCD for President Barack Obama). Tom arrived with Carrie Fisher and her dog, Gary. Sadly, Carrie passed away a few months after this event.

Tom paid tribute to Carrie's "indomitable spirit" at the Golden Globes. If we can take anything, a lesson. from her - it's just to live as fully as we can. To embrace our weaknesses, and that very act makes them become strengths. 

The WHCD is a celebration for journalists who cover the White House, also known as Nerd Prom. It is attended my media, celebrities, and usually the President of the US as well.  Tom and Carrie attended as guests of The Guardian

He also ran into Josh Horowitz. 2 idiots found themselves at the #WHCD! Someone's been Loki'd.

After the dinner, Tom headed to the Vanity Fair WHCD After Party - where he was sure to get a snack. 

He also spent some time with Gary's dog toy, a Princess Leia rubber ducky. (He mentions the story of this in the Golden Globes video above)

A dance off with Damian Lewis. Tom and Damian have been signed on to work together in James Ivory's Richard II film for years but it's never found funding. 

The afterparty with Damian, Michelle Dockery, Jared Leto, and Helen Mirren.


You can always tell when Tom Hiddleston is wearing Brunello Cucinelli because the trousers are always just a little bit a lot of bit too short. But the midnight blue really stood out in the sea of black tuxedos everybody else was wearing. 
  • Brunello Cucinelli Wool Peak Lapel Tuxedo, $4,495
  • Johnston & Murphy Fulcher Plain Toe, $250
  • Mykita Kaya Glasses in Puddle Grey, $519

TIFF: High-Rise (2015)

September 13-14, 2015: 

Tom Hiddleston had two films at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival: I Saw the Light and High-Rise. You can read the post about on the I Saw the Light related events here. Tom also attended TIFF in 2011 and 2013

September 13: 

Ben Wheatley, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Thomas, and Jeremy Irons all attended the premiere screening of their film High-Rise at the Toronto International Film Festival. I think there was a memo for all the leading men to wear Grey. 

After the premiere, there was a Q&A. 

September 14: 

The next day, the High-Rise cast (minus Jeremy Irons) reunited for the official TIFF press conference. 12:00-15:35 Tom gives a very detailed description his preparation for High-Rise and what he learned working with a pathologist and viewing an autopsy. 

Tom Hiddleston finished up his very busy week at TIFF with several interviews and photoshoots. Tom talks about all his new projects and coming back into the spotlight after being away for nearly two years *hint, hint*
